Are We Thailand?

Just this one brief reflection on politics, and that’ll be it for the day. The nooze will keep till tomorrow.

In 2016 the military junta running Thailand outlawed “rude opinions (https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-thailand-politics-idUKKCN0XU0PA?edition-redirect=uk). They also banned discussion of public controversies, spontaneous gatherings, and imposed up to ten years in jail for violating any of their little taboos. Five years later, the angry protests in the streets are still practically a daily occurrence.

Here in America, once upon a time the land of the free, assorted bigwigs are talking about censoring any criticism, any doubts, any fears of the new COVID vaccine. No discussion allowed. And I got an email from some fellow American hoping the FBI would arrest me for holding political opinions not shared by the Democrat Party and Mark Zuckerberg.

I keep wondering how we got here. What do you suppose Adlai Stevenson, John F. Kennedy, Harry Truman, or Hubert Humphrey would have said if you’d asked him, “Hey, bro, should people be arrested for saying rude things about the government?” But today’s Democrats want to jail you for saying you don’t believe in Man-Made Climate Change.

How did this happen? How did we wind up with multitudes of Americans clamoring for more censorship, for punishment for unpopular opinions, for more and more restraints on speech? Our colleges and universities are pushing this like their lives depended on it (and maybe they do–suck up to the government, to keep those public moneys pouring in).

Okay, sure–many years ago, you weren’t allowed to be a communist. Boo-hoo, how Hollywood suffered. But if that was so bad, liberals, why in the world do you want to bring it back? After all those years of lamenting McCarthyism, you want to bring it back? You want to expand its definition? Everyone who’s not you is an Enemy Of The State?

They will not rest until they abolish freedom altogether.

It’s what their master, Satan, wants from them.

  1. It starts in the public schools, which are staffed by products of the communist-infiltrated teachers’ colleges. And then each indoctrinated generation indoctrinates the next generation, until all memory of a free society is obliterated.

  2. I don’t understand all the gloom and doom. We have God’s promises, like this one: “Blessed is the man whom You instruct, O Lord, and teach out of Your law, that You may give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit is dug for the wicked” (Psalm 94:12, 13). By God allowing the Left to steal Trump’s landslide election it has become a time to see who is on the side of darkness – for instance Mitch McConnell. If God had let Trump win, Trump would still be fighting the Deep State and Rhinos, but now when Trump reemerges (which he will) he will be all the wiser. All those who conspired to throw the election are like the Book of Esther – God will expose them and deal with them with His justice. Christian soldiers, stay in the battle for the victory is the Lord’s. Watch and observe as our God digs a deep and wide pit for the communists. P.S. How many angels are available to help us win this fight?

    1. It’s not unfair to say that part of Trump’s legacy was to reveal just how deeply and widely corrupt our Deep State and Capitol Hill are. Even the FBI. Now at least we know what’s broken and has to be replaced or fixed.

      Most of the government, for starters…
